BAR vs EIB Dream11 Prediction
FC Barcelona will be back in action later tonight as they play host to Eibar at Camp Nou. Talking about the standings, the Catalans have been unlike themselves and have been a bit hot and cold in the Spanish League. FC Barcelona are currently in at the 5th spot with 24 points to their names having won seven, drawn three and lost four games from the 14 so far. The former champions are seven points away from Atletico Madrid who reside at the top and will be keen on striking further consistency. Eibar, on the other hand, are dangling at the 17th spot with 15 points on board. They are a point away from the danger zone, but back to back defeats to Real Madrid and Alaves must have deflated some shoulders going ahead. They will have to be at their absolute best in order to avoid defeat to Barcelona, and with that being said, here is the BAR vs EIB Dream 11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.

Kick-Off: 11:45 PM (IST)
Venue: Camp Nou
FC Barcelona: LWWDW
